'Parenthood' Cast Video Of 'Girl On TV' Cover From Mae Whitman's Boyfriend Landon Pigg
This week's episode of "Parenthood" (Tuesdays at 10 p.m. EST on NBC) certainly brought a lot of tears, but the ensemble cast made up for it by releasing an adorable, smile-worthy music video set to a cover of LFO's "Girl On TV," which Teen Vogue exclusively posted.
Musician Landon Pigg -- who is dating "Parenthood" star Mae Whitman, who plays Amber on the hour-long drama -- did a cover of the 1999 boy band hit and the Whitman's fellow cast members stepped in to make an accompanying music video.
Pairing off, the video mainly features Whitman, Miles Heizer (Amber's brother, Drew), Bonnie Bedelia (their grandmother Camille), Craig T. Nelson (her husband Zeek, the "Parenthood" patriarch), Savannah Paige Rae (Braverman cousin Sydney) and scene-stealer Tyree Brown (Jabbar, another Braverman cousin).
Long-time guest star Michael B. Jordan also lends some rapping skills to the track with his on-again-off-again on-screen girlfriend Sarah Ramos dancing in the background. "Parenthood" stars Peter Krause, Dax Shephard, Max Burkholder, Lauren Graham, Erika Christensen and Sam Jaeger also do some lip-syncing and dancing as well as recurring guest stars Jason Ritter and Rosa Salazar. Seemingly, only Monica Potter and Joy Bryant were missing from the incredibly charming video.
Pigg is no stranger to "Parenthood": His music has been featured on the series and he made a cameo at Crosby (Shephard) and Adam's (Krause) studio, The Luncheonette. "I love the sort of underrated, undiscovered artists -- like Landon Pigg came on, and we're all really good friends with him," Shephard previously told Zap2It.com of cameos. "That level for me is a really good level, where maybe 5% of the audience is like 'Oh, that's Landon Pigg! We'd love to have him back. He'll always be around."
The cast was clearly excited about the video, tweeting it around:
The first and likely not last time I say: this is the greatest thing ever. Starring some of your favorite tweeters: bit.ly/y8W4gn-- Erika Christensen (@ERIKAjaneC) February 22, 2012

The heartfelt "Parenthood" has been in danger of cancellation for a while now, but with it's third season finale airing next week, hopefully this won't be the last time we see the cast together.
The Season 3 finale of "Parenthood" airs Tues., Feb. 28 at 10 p.m. EST on NBC.
